Part 1. What is Kodi?

Kodi is a free and open-source media player software application developed by the XBMC Foundation. Kodi features a sleek option buttons layout, easy to navigate GUI (Graphical User Interface), wide scope of video format supported, and smooth video playback performance and the specialty in serving as a media library for Kodi users to manage their media collection. The best part of Kodi is that the numerous versatile Kodi addons that capture online media streams, to provide users with gorgeous audiovisual content without cost.

What are Kodi Addons? Why Do I Need Addons for Kodi?

For those who don’t know, the official Kodi version doesn’t provide any content whatsoever. Unofficial Kodi versions, however, are not recommended to use since they might bring you malware and other risks. To explore the full potential of Kodi on the official version, installing addons for Kodi is an essential process. Kodi addons will pull media resources from network streams to create a free connection between Kodi and online media resources, thus we Kodi users get to enjoy free movies, live TV, live sports, TV shows, etc. without cost.

What are Kodi Repositories?

Kodi repositories, Kodi repos in abbreviation, are containers like addon bundles that contain a set of filtered addons. By installing a Kodi repository instead of individual Addons, the Addons are automatically updated when a new version is released. Kodi repositories come in the form of ZIP files or a source URL, and adding addons to Kodi is often based on the repo’s installation.
